Our good sis Keka Palmer has been securing several bags lately. This time, her eyes are on the prize for a role in Whoopi Goldberg’s Sister Act 3.
The 28-year-old actress, who was invited on The View to promote her new book series “Southern Belle Insults,” made her intentions very clear.
“Now, Whoopi, I gotta shoot my shot like I did with Issa [Rae] a little bit ago. I heard that Tyler Perry is doing Sister Act 3, and I just want you to know I’m available for the job, any job. I mean, you don’t have to say anything now. I’ll send you an email or something. Just let me know.”
To her surprise, Goldberg was one step ahead of her. She responded, “I already brought it up. Come on, Keke.”
Palmer then responded, “Hashtag booked. I know that’s right!”
Fans who saw the clip were amazed.
“The look on her face when Whoopi says, I’ve already brought it up is everyone’s happy moment. I would totally buy a ticket for that movie!”
“Keke ‘Keep A Bag’ Palmer #Booked.”
“I legit love this girl. It’s not just the multi-talent. It’s also the genuine character. Not her shooting her shot with Whoopi and Whoopi’s like I GOT YOU.”
“That’s so amazing how the universe works. KeKe wanted to work with Whoopi, and it was already being made to happen. We love to see it. Black girl magic!”

Last year, Disney announced via Twitter that Sister Act 3 was in development and would premiere on the streaming app. In addition to the movie news, the company also shared that Goldberg would be reprising her role as Deloris Van Cartier — a lounge singer who joined a convent after being placed in a witness protection program — in the Tyler Perry-produced project.
Since then, no additional details regarding the film have been released.
